KEB America today introduced the new C6 HMI, a moisture and water resistant stainless steel human-machine interface (HMI) suitable for food and beverage, packaging, and pharmaceutical applications. The IP69K certified panel uses 316L stainless steel and is offered as a standalone HMI or as a HMI + programmable logic controller (PLC) combo. The C6 stainless steel HMI offers protection in environments where high pressure water or steam is used to sanitize or clean the equipment. Its rugged design makes it ideal for industrial applications.
The C6 HMI supports over 40 different communication drivers including EtherNet/IP, ProfiNet, and Modbus so it can be paired with nearly every PLC. The panel also includes a micro UPS to protect non-volatile data and a software tool that permits backup, restoration and transfer of programs. Integrated remote maintenance capability comes standard and allows monitoring and maintenance of remote installations using a secure VPN connection. The panel features a brilliant touch screen display with 16 million colors that offer high-quality visualization.
